Notch, the creator of Minecraft still retains that charm on the Xbox 360. It’s clear that the console’s audience love such games considering the popularity of spin-off games such as FortressCraft.
Major Nelson has just revealed in his blog that Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition has sold over 1 million units in less than a week. Earlier it broke the launch records for any Xbox Live Arcade title, and now it has broken the sales record as well.
I wonder if PS3 gets this game eventually or not, because this is a big pickup for Microsoft and one that will probably be one of the biggest selling games of this year.
We got a bit more stats though, which you can check out below:
“In less than one week on the market, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has sold more than 1,000,000 units globally,” Nelson wrote.
